The evidence that Republican US Senate candidate Roy Moore is lying about his past pursuit of teenage women just became even stronger after one of his accusers rediscovered documents from her relationship with him.
Last week, Moore denied he had ever met any of the nine women who accuse him of sexual improprieties. “Specifically, I do not know any of these women,” he said last Monday. Then on Wednesday, Moore asserted “I do not know any of these women” and “did not date any of these women.”
But the Washington Post reports today that Debbie Wesson Gibson, who has said she dated Moore when she was 17 and he was in his thirties, recently found a high school graduation card Moore gave her.
“Happy graduation Debbie,” it reads. “I wanted to give you this card myself. I know that you’ll be a success in anything you do. Roy.”
Gibson, a registered Republican who thought very highly of Moore until he began calling her a liar, says that she found her senior scrapbook in a forgotten storage bin while she was getting her Christmas decorations out of the attic last week.
Not only does it include the card signed by Moore, it also has this contemporary note about their first date: “Wednesday night, 3-4-81. Roy S. Moore and I went out for the first time. We went out to eat at Catfish Cabin in Albertville. I had a great time.”
Although they stopped dating when she left for college, Gibson says that she helped distribute flyers during Moore’s failed campaign for circuit court in 1982. In fact, they kept in touch for years.
She said that when she became engaged, Moore insisted on meeting her fiance to make sure he was “good enough for me.” She said when Moore was first appointed as a circuit court judge in 1992, she sent him a gavel engraved with his name and a congratulatory note, and that her family and his exchanged Christmas cards some years.
She said that she held Moore “in high esteem,” despite political differences with him, until she began hearing stories from other women who alleged that Moore pursued them as teenagers. She said that at first she did not want to believe the women.
“It takes what I thought was a very lovely part of my past, and it colors it, and it changes it irrevocably,” she said. “It changes it permanently.”
Gibson now feels very differently towards Roy Moore. Watching him deny ever knowing her at all, she no longer sees an old flame, just a lying hypocrite.
While a full handwriting analysis remains to be conducted, former FBI forensic examiner Mark Songer tells the Washington Post that Gibson’s documents appear “naturally prepared” rather than forged.
Even with perfect proof, however, surveys show that many of Moore’s supporters are simply unwilling to believe anything bad about him. Donald Trump, who is wildly popular in the state of Alabama, gave Moore his full-throated endorsement today.
